, public comment portion is closed. commissioner moore. >> commissioner moore: i'd like to put to the record that this is a mandatory discretionary review, and the issues, which the residential design team has addressed are those typically addressed in a mandatory discretionary review. i want to say that i think the review is extremely thorough, creative, and supportive of those ideas that are important to us as a commission. i want to comment taking it down from the top, the 15 foot setback from the street is something which this commission has asked the department to consistently implement. it's not 11 feet. it's not 12 feet. it's 15 feet where it occurs on the street side of a property which is larger than two stories, because this particular setback should not be seen from the front. so it's really not an issue to question, but just to accept because this commission has used this rule and over the years had the department strong implement the same 15 feet wherever that type of condition occurs. on the second one, regarding the garage door, that is also a guideline which thi

something that some of us are looking for. >> commissioner moore. >> both comments by commissioner suguya and commissioner wu are spot-on. it is something that none of us have experienced. however, the guidance given to us and the interpretation to us by the zoning administrator that this should follow the typical timeframes by which projects come back is what indeed i feel comfortable supporting because that is by the rules that we work and that is what the public is expecting. i would suggest that it is indeed changed and movement on the project. however, until the process has been fully worked out with the neighborhood regarding all of the issues that were briefly touched on by the people presenting, it's time to do it right this time. as we always said, every project has neighborhood support and the department's guidance has indeed created that and we're agreeing with it, then the project should hopefully be on successful way for approval. >> commissioner suguya, do you have another comment? >> i did. to the zoning administrator, interpretation of the planning code language that a
for that. >> steven moore is the senior economics writer for the "wall street journal." necessary chicago. steven what do you make of congressman mcclintock and a lot of congressmen out there that mr. boehner has lost control of his own party? >> well, he certainly did, miquel, temporarily last week. almost everybody expected that plan b, as you described it, to past. and it had to be pulled at the last minute. that was an embarrassment for the speaker. he couldn't line up the votes in his own caucus that mean there is a lot of divisions even among the republicans about the best way to plead and i think, miguel, this means john boehner has to come up with plan c now. because as you just mentioned, we got about a week left and i still believe there's a chance, i would not put the odds too low, that maybe on december 30 or december 31, they get a deal done this is the way washington works, folks, like a teenager doing his homework, right? they always do it very very last minute. haven't given up hope is there a deal struck before the end of the year. >> 11 p.m. on new year's eve, they are g
, commissioner moore. >> i am very interested and very supportive of this particular legislation. what i would like to ask and perhaps you are already doing it, i see diagrams of bike racks, which reflect more of the traditional approach to bike racks and a significant amount of theft, which is happening. i hope sfmta and yourself and the bicycle coalition will strongly investigate which types of bike racks and which types of locks provide the largest security? i just recently read an article where the police department themselves tried to recommend to bicyclists what to do. it's a question of staying in the dialogue of technology, new and improved bike racks, including the fact that people are starting to ride slightly more expensive bicycles than just the $10 rotterdam-type bicycle. with that, because it make thems feel more comfortable or safety people want assurance that those bicycle racks are safe. just like with your car, you don't want it falling over when someone else pulls their bike out. that there is a little bit of understanding of what it takes to park a bike properly and safel
moore of "the wall street journal," the top 10% of income earners in this country pay more income tax proportionally than the top 10% than any other industrialized country. there's not a shortage of tax pain. the key thing is how do you get a system that encourages more creativity to the government and the collecting more. surveys have shown, research has shown countries have low tax rates systems, low tax burden, end up collecting more revenue than those that have high tax rates or raising their tax burden. again, people have more free markets and the government will get its abundant cut as well. the key thing is how do you get the free markets going quite heavy get our freedom and free markets? how do you get them going? it would be fine sponsor remembers what it's world is, not the cover or have today, but by madison and others. >> we've been talking with steve forbes about his new book, "freedom manifesto: why free markets are moral and big government isn't" also out on the market is "how capitalism will save us." what's your enthusiasm level but then that romney campaign? >> he w
condoleeza rice and south carolina financier darla moore are the first female members since 1932. linda, what do you think was the biggest women's story of 2012? >> i do think the women's role and women's vote in the 2012 election is the big story. you had a huge gap an 18% gap between president obama's female vote and mitt romney's. but more importantly it's not just that the women are much larger part of the electorate, 54%, but that married women have declined, republicans still do relatively well with married women but there are fewer and fewer of those women in america because marriage is in decline. >> mitt romney actually won the white married women vote. >> that's right. >> republicans always win the white married women's vote, although we saw considerable numbers of women married women vote for president obama. actually i think the biggest women's story of the year is why women saw to it that a black man had a second term as president of the united states. i think i'm agreeing with linda. i don't think anybody will ever take the women's vote for granted again, just as they won't take

with a highly show cased admission of former secretary is of state condoleezza rice. and donna a moore. >> i have not thought about where i will play but i have thought about where i've been. when peyton manning decided to part ways with the colts, did coverage of where he would land was intense. after broncos fans learned he would play in denver, they must have felt like they won the lottery are, made the trade of tebow to the jets easier to accept. the emergence of golf's newest stars took center stage in 20 buba watson introduced himself as a new leader. meanwhile, a 23-year-old from northern ireland, rory mcilroy, ended the year as the world's top ranked player and let the comparisons to tiring woods begin. ever since he appeared on the cover of on "sports illustrated" as a 17-year-old, it was not a question of when, but if he won a ring. that kicame this year. he won his championship, was voted mvp and won olympic gold. the nfl had a battle with the referees of money. replacemented were attempted but after a blown call on national tv, the criticism was too much and the to sides came to

's bring stephen moore in. i think you're going to disagree with my notion that government can be all that helpful to our runner. that government can be helpful other than by getting out of the way. i think you're going to suggest lower taxes, lower spending, fewer regulations. for the sake of this argument and analogy, accept that taxes are going up. there are many soifr who is argue that there is not a role for government in this let the markets and private industry handle it. but they haven't, and we've got substandard roads and bridges and electricity and broadband infrastructure. all of this means we're less attractive to business. do you accept that the government has a role to play in the rebuilding of america's infrastructure? >> well, sure. and by the way, i love your optimism, ali, i hope you're exactly right about 2013 and 2014. we've been spending money on the programs. a lot of the school buildings, i mean that's been going on in a large magnitude in the united states. what i like and where we might find some agreement, you know, i do think private-sector dollars can lead

florio. and heidi moore. finance and editor of "the guardian newspapers. and dean baker, author of "the end of loser liberalism, making markets progressive." codirector of the center for economic and policy research. so, after at least after a dozen different public offers, countless press conferences and weeks of closed car door talks lawmakers in washington left town for the holidays on friday without an agreement to avert what we're calling the fiscal curb. a series of automatic tax increases and spending cuts to take affect a week from now. a moment this week, the two sides seemed on the cusp of a deal. that would have involved at least one major concession from president obama. to cut social security benefits. the cuts wouldn't have been direct. they would have come from a tweak to the way the social security benefits are calculated. here's how it works. right now the amount of money a retireee gets from the government gets is changed due to the index. when inflakes goes up, social security recipients see their payments go up the same amount to keep up with the cost of living. obam
